At Bee Creek UMC, we believe that children matter and we consider it a holy calling and honor to walk alongside children and their families as they grow, learn, play, laugh, and love. Children experience the world with such pure joy and wonder which is why now is the perfect time for you to bring your children to experience the joy of a wonderful church family and the wonder of getting to know God. Children matter deeply to Jesus and they matter deeply to us here at Bee Creek UMC.
Every Sunday morning children join us in worship in the sanctuary for a children's moment with the pastor and then are dismissed for Children's Church, which is for kids from birth through fifth grade.
Most of our classes are using Orange curriculum which has a fun monthly theme important to children in their daily lives such as honesty, loving God, family, friends, etc. The children experience and learn about their faith in ways in which children learn and experience life: through play, creating, talking, sharing, and laughing.
Our volunteers are the heartbeat of our ministry and it’s an honor to serve with each and every one of them as they love kids each week! Every volunteer who leads in the Children's Ministry here at Bee Creek UMC has had a background check and is committed to making the ministry a safe, Biblically relevant, and fun environment for your kids.

"But Jesus said, "Let the children come to me. Don't stop them!
For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children."
Matthew 19:4 NLT
Here at Bee Creek UMC your children are very important to us, and we want to ensure that each child is safe and that you, as a parent, know that your child is safe and happy.
for Preschool-5th grade Children
Each Sunday, you will need to check your child in for Children's Church at our Children's Check in table right in the foyer of the sanctuary. We have computers to Check-In and you will be guided on how to print out a name tags: one for your children to wear and one for you to wear to present at Check-Out. These nametags also have a place to list specific allergies. Then, children will sit with you in worship and join us for the Children's sermon. They will then be dismissed to go with their Children's Church teacher to their classroom in the campus cabins. There are signs in the foyer and clearly marked on the sidewalks leading to the cabins showing which cabin your child's age group is located. You can then pick up your child following worship by going to their cabin and checking out your child with their teacher by handing your name tag to the teacher.
Thank you so much for helping us as we strive to make our Children's Ministry a safe environment for your kids to learn about God.
We have a wonderful nursery and loving staff ready to cherish your infant while you worship. Simply drop off your infant-3 year old off in our nursery which is located in Cabin 1a directly in front of the sanctuary building. Our staff are trained in infant care and we always have 2 trained staff/volunteers present during the 9:30 and 11 am worship services. Our nursery also uses the Orange curriculum with creative and age appropriate ways for even our littles ones to learn about their faith and the amazing love of God.
